Julian Lloyd Webber Talks To The BCU International Piano Academy: Julian Lloyd Webber
"This will be the very first public talk given by Julian since his final performance and the neck injury that has forced him to retire from playing the cello. A unique opportunity to listen to him to talk about his amazing career as a soloist, the challenges he has faced and the advice he can offer to musicians.
Widely regarded as one of the finest musicians of his generation, Julian Lloyd Webber has enjoyed one of the most creative and successful careers in classical music today. At the age of 16 he won a scholarship to the Royal College of Music and he completed his studies in Geneva with the renowned cellist, Pierre Fournier. Julian has premiered more than 60 works for cello and his many recordings have earned worldwide acclaim. He was the London Underground's first official busker and he was the only classical musician chosen to perform at the Closing Ceremony of Olympics 2012. In April 2014 Julian received the Incorporated Society of Musician's Distinguished Musician Award."
